There is no such thing as balance.
There is no such thing as a perfect life.
We are all just trying to do the best we can, with the 24 hours we have each day. Sometimes we feel like we are failing, and other days we feel like a damn parade should be thrown in our honor for all we've accomplished.
In the age of people having 'social media perfect' lives, let's keep it real for a few moments. Because nobody has a perfect life. And nobody believes that because you say that your life couldn't be more perfect on social media, that it's the truth. I think the recent tragic deaths of celebrities (who to those of us who didn't know them felt they 'had it all') has finally inspired more people to start being more authentic. I've seen more people speaking up. More authenticity. Because no amount of money or fame means you are not going through something on a deeper more personal level. Money doesn't equal happiness. People are struggling, whether it be in relationships, financially, physically, emotionally, or mentally. And people need to know that they are not the only ones struggling, that there are others out there struggling too, who are there to listen, to be a shoulder, to help if they can. We need to celebrate wins with one another, but also be there when things aren't going so great.
